Scripture Reference
2nd Timothy 1: 7 For God hath not given us a spirit of fear but of power, love and a sound mind

There is Fear and there is a Spirit of Fear , people can Naturaly fear things like frogs, spiders e.t.c but there is fear that is caused by a spirit, the fear that cause people to fear the unknown, to fear things they have not seen, the fear that always think failure in a way that it can stop people to even take steps of faith. Fear is the opposite of faith.

Even giants of faith had those times where fear engulfed them, Genesis 20:2 ( Abraham said of Sarah his wife, She is my sister: and Abimelech king of Gerar sent, and took Sarah.) : Abraham denied Sarah as his wife because of fear of what they might do to him knowing a beautiful woman like Sarah was his wife. Jacob was also frighted as he was about to meet Esau , having fear of what He might do to him and his people (Gen32:7)





Referral Scripture: Zechariah 9:12 (NKJV)12 Return to the stronghold, You prisoners of hope. Even today I declare
That I will restore double to you.

Hope – an attitude of mind that is based on a positive outcome in the midst of negatives.

Zechariah is one of the Prophet who was sent to prophesy on the children of Israel who had lost hope, to tell them about the future, declaring things to come. Normally hope is something seen or needed when you going through hard times and have a reason to carry on while situations are against you.

Nothing is bad as being hopeless, God doesn’t want us to be hopeless, book of Philippians, Ephesians, and Corinthians Paul the Apostle was writing these Epistles being in prison but when you look on his writings you can never tell that the person who is writing this is in prison, on his writings he is giving the believers hope while he himself is in a hopeless situation, giving hope to people who seem to be free compared to him. He even say REJOICE ALWAYS AND AGAIN I SAY REJOICE, He tells people about joy while he is in a place with no joy.
